Waiting for mommy by JustMoth Waiting for mommy by JustMoth
After Ditzy Doo suddenly disappears with a purple alicorn, Silver Bell entertains herself for the next few days by painting on a large roll of paper that she found.

While waiting for Fallout: Equestria chapter 40 to come out, I had the thought of what Silver bell would be doing while Ditzy was away, and of course she would be painting what was happening around her. I had so many ideas for the 3 days that Ditzy was gone while rescuing Pip and then the glowing treatment, that I knew it couldn't be done on a standard picture. so I had the idea of using a roll of paper to show events over time.

In chapter 40 Silver Bell gets her magic back, so this will be my last picture from her, since her drawing skill with her horn would go far beyond my own ability. Because of this, I chose to book end this picture with the first one by having her finally being able to draw her family again, showing how much she has recovered.

Goodness this is making me tear up. Gosh, why did it take me so long to find this amazing thing? I haven't had this much emotional reaction since the original [i]Fallout: Equestria[/i]. Thank you, Mr. JustMoth.

Curse you for making me cry again! :cry:

-AHEM- Sorry... you're not really cursed, you know, I just love FO:E too much. .. and I love this scroll!
I get all caught up in the drama and the emotions and I forget I'm not there... it's a problem I have. Well, not exactly a problem.

This scroll is amazing and wonderful and I love how it really does show the chapter from Bell's perspective... so much tragedy and she's still trying so hard.

It occurs to me that last part applies to most of the cast... well, the female parts of the cast, anyway.

I really like how you've put in some nice 3D rendered objects to give it a great "in progress on the floor" feeling. :D

I picture that she asked Calamity where Steelhooves and Velvet were and she was just too adorable for him to lie to.
Picking the right color for him was just Pinkie-Pie level guessing :)

Message from Kkat:

I love this more than I can say. So I've decided to show it with my name choice for Ditzy Doo's bodyguard. That was for you. ^.^

And the party... that was just you being precognitive.

I'm going to miss these. They always added an extra element of life to the Fallout story. it help pull everyone's visuals into perspective. The whole thing looks great by the way, and the hoofprint and Radboom look amazing. Ialso love the detail on the griffon (whose name escapes me at the moment.) Crossing his arms adds a depth of character that might not be caught if you simply read the story. All in all, this is a wonderful piece, and while I may not have commented on the others, know that I enjoyed them as well.

Thank you for the complements, but I don't really deserve half of them :disbelief:
I would not recommend going by my visuals, they're rather weak, other artists do the characters much more justice...
I gave the bodyguard griffin the nickname "Gilly" since he didn't have a name (or gender) yet, and in a neat coincidence Kkat named him Gilgamesh in the latest chapter, so the nickname wound up fitting!
The crossed arms were not my doing, Gilda was in that pose in the screenshot I traced, I mainly used that pose since I thought the wings looked neat mid flap...
Glad you enjoyed the pics though :)

Visual vary from person to person because of what they see. from your visuals you are painting the picture of what I see when reading. In all honesty, this mural of events is just what I needed for a recap of events, A lot has happend in the last few chapters, and this was a great way for me to keep up. Regardless of how you went about doing this, it doesn't stop it from being an excellent piece.

So many people mention crying over this happy painting, and just as many mention laughing at the sad first paintings. My emotional targeting must be inverted... :shrug:

I read them all in chunks and I must say, very entertaining and so perfect with the thoughts of a child. I love Silver Bell's thoughts on DJ-Pon3 and making him look like Three Dog, very nice. They're all very cute, even if the alternate endings are depressing, but that's as they were meant to be. I loved it all, regardless.

Her magic is back but she probably cant use it well yet. keep doing more of these, with it gradually getting better.

That would require that my drawing ability would improve too, and I don't see that happening any time soon. These pictures are traced (poorly) off MLP:FIM, I really can't draw at all, and there is no reasonable reason why Silver Bell would keep with a simple cartoony style as her skills improve when her real world is much more detailed.

And as I said, this is an ideal spot to end these pictures story wise.

you still should though, because her skill might progress, but she hasnt used it in forever... and we dont know if she used it for art before.

Silver Bell's drawing ability is only half the reason, the other half is that her story arch is done (unless Kkat adds more tragedy to the poor filly's life). She started off very broken, but with Ditzy' help and endless love she's now recovering. So there's not much narrative left to work with, and it would be too cheap to just make cute pictures with no point (Kkat's work deserves better than that).

That's not to say I'm done with the Equestria wasteland, I have some ideas in the works... :)

thats a good point. i try not to bastardize anything in that reguard, but ive got my hooves full with the Dungeons and Dragons FO:E project. im still quite a few articles away from posting it.


I will agree KKat is wonderful for providing this, and i follow FO:E religiously, but i also like PH. much work needs to be done on all of this as a community, and i bet we could be steps away from having it made as an actual game :)

Sounds cool! :D I'm working on a Hoofington campaign to run my friends through... it's gonna take some time to put it all together, but it'll be fun. Pathfinder is wonderful for adapting to other worlds, it's a lot simpler and more flexible than 3.5 was. I had considered Pathfinder, but some of my friends really like ShadowRun, and the SR magic system is a lot more like how the Unicorn magic works (in FO:E) than anything I've found in D20.

well to be fair, we had to completely invent all of the weapon stats and designs, and the skills to match them, plus add the varying damage changes for skill and wear and tear upon them.
